CIS Seminar: “Communication Complexity, Quantum Computing and Optimization: New Connections and Insights”

March 31 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu + Google Map

How much information flows through a system? This fundamental question is at the heart of communication complexity. Techniques from this field have turned out to be immensely powerful and fairly universal tools to understand the power of different kinds of algorithms. In this talk, I will describe new methods that I have developed to analyze […]

CBE Seminar: “Systems Biology of Glycosylation: Examples from Cancer Biology, Inflammatory Disease and SARS-CoV-2 Infection”

March 31 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract Glycosylation is a common and complex post-translational modification that is orchestrated in all mammalian cells. Glycan structures thus formed either absolutely control or fine-tune various biological processes. These include the half-life of biologics in circulation, the rates of leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion interaction during inflammation, tumorigenesis and the kinetics of cancer metastasis. The pattern of […]

Spring 2021 GRASP SFI: “Optimizing Orthoses: Challenges in predicting human performance”

March 31 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Abstract: Innovations in hardware and control have created a new class of orthoses or exoskeletons to augment and assist human movement. These designs enable forces and torques to be applied to nearly any segment of the body. However, predicting how an individual will adapt their movement in response to external assistance remains incredibly challenging. These […]

ODEI Spotlight: Cultivating Equity-Focused Institutional Change in University STEM Departments

March 31 at 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Discipline-based education research has made great strides in understanding how to foster more equitable and effective teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, there still has yet to be widespread adoption of reforms in university STEM departments. Our project seeks to understand how departments can implement sustainable, large-scale changes to undergraduate education. While these […]
